Tentative Agreement Reached for State Worker Contract

Dear CWA Members,

WE HAVE A TENTATIVE AGREEMENT FOR  A CONTRACT for State Workers (Executive Branch).

We reached an agreement on a July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2019 contract with the Murphy Administration that addresses all retroactive increments, clothing allowance and two across the board increases of 2% and 2%.

We will meet with Shop Stewards and get you the details of the Agreement this week. We will be announcing voting details and dates soon through our shop stewards and worksite broadcasts. You will be able to see everything in writing before the ratification vote.

We achieved our goals.  The contract improves on the pattern set by other settlements and sets a foundation for our next contract.  We bargained to receive all of our increments retroactively and raises for workers at max. There are no concessions in this tentative agreement.  We protected the Contract.

We also know we waited a long time to reach this agreement and we have new issues to bargain for the next one. We will begin bargaining the next contract a year in advance, and have bargaining dates for the next round already scheduled in May 2018.

Your Bargaining Team unanimously supports this Agreement.  When we fight – we win!
 
In Solidarity,

Your Bargaining Team

Dennis Trainor, Vice President
Hetty Rosenstein, NJ Director

State Worker Contract Bargaining Update

March 15, 2018

Dear CWA Local 1037 Member,

The CWA Bargaining Committee and the Murphy Administration are currently in negotiations to resolve all legal, contractual and retroactive matters (including wages, increments and other benefits.) In an attempt to come to a resolution as quickly as possible, bargaining will continue next week. Negotiations will be ongoing until a tentative agreement is reached.

The Bargaining Committee is comprised of myself, the six other State Worker Local Presidents, CWA NJ Director Hetty Rosenstein, and District 1 Vice President Dennis Trainor. Legal counsel Steve Weissman is also representing us at the bargaining table.
